iiO (sometimes written as IIO, pronounced "eye-oh") was a New York City based house music act consisting of producer/songwriter Markus Moser and singer/songwriter Nadia Ali. iiO are best known for their 2001 hit "Rapture". The name iiO was derived from the Sony PC laptop model VAIO, on which the duo was creating much of their early work, and the duo was in fact first known as Vaiio.
After "Rapture" was released, the duo followed suit with "At The End" in 2002, "Smooth" in 2003, and "Runaway" in 2004.
iiO's first album, "Poetica", was delayed several times and released independently in March 2005 on Made Records, and worldwide in June 2006.
By the time the album was released Nadia Ali had left iiO to pursue a solo career, while Moser continues to release material featuring her on the vocals. These included the single "Kiss You", which was released to promote the album, followed by "Is It Love?". Moser followed these with "Rapture 2007" and "Reconstruction Time: The Best Of iiO Remixed" in 2007, and finally "Rapture Reconstruction: Platinum Edition in 2008.
iiO re-emerged from hiatus in December 2010 with Moser releasing new remixes of the band's second single "At The End (Metropolitan Mix)". Moser released a second album, "Exit 110" on April 19, 2011 featuring Ali on vocals. It was announced that Exit 110 will be iiO's final project and while Moser had doubts about using material Ali recorded before she left iiO, it was decided to release a new album due to a demand by fans.

The night I laid my eyes on you
- LyricsI never knew a love
A love that could be sweeter
No matter what my mind says
Your music gives me fever
The moment that we danced
- LyricsWhen you're away
I'm feeling empty, I lose my mind
But when you're around
I take for granted most of our time
Honey, you say that I'm cold
- LyricsI'd wake up and make love to you if I had you
I would touch you so much but I'm not allowed to
What I hate is to wait but in this case I'm patient
I'm discreet, I'm not weak, I just need the moment
He wants me, he wants me not
- LyricsHoney, love, honey, love, what you do to me
I can't think, I can't act the way I use to be
Got no choice, just your voice send me through the roof
I'm a mess, I confess it's because of you
Ooh, shook me up so quickly
